university, havenít you?

weekend so Iím off to library to do research.

essays Iíve written this term.

And Iím still trying to hold down full-time job at bank.

and concentrate on your studies; or get evening job at pub or something.

There are so part time jobs going if you need cash.

armchair, couch, enormous bed and kitchen equipment too. Iíll manage somehow.

Anyway, enough about me, what are you up to?

Philip: Iím about to go on long vacation. I intend to travel round South America. In fact Iím going to

travel agency now to get information on touring South America. Iíll be away for

couple of months or maybe bit longer.
